I have three kids.
My son’s name was found because there were only 3 left on the list:
My daughter’s name came to me in a dream. And I woke up and I knew it. There was not one doubt and no arguing.
My second daughter’s name was difficult to find. We had a handful of names left. And finally I wrote them on slips of paper and we drew her name out of a hat.
Are names important? My kids wouldn’t be different with different names.
A rose by any other name would still smell like a rose. (Sorry, I don’t know Shakespeare in English, I can’t quote it properly)
My name is Catherine Annette. I don’t know what people think when they read or hear that name. I go by Cathy, haven’t ever known it any other way.
When we read or hear a name, we have an image in our heads. Parents know how that exact thing makes it hard to name the kids.
I am serene and at a good place right now. Yet I often wonder how others perceive me. 💜
